  1. Shane John Backx says:

    Shouldnt any team of sheilas consist entirely of wingmen and half forward flanker recievers?

  2. Dave Nadel says:

    Clever team, although I doubt if there were any women in Australia named Britt when Con was playing.

  3. Phillip Dimitriadis says:

    Nice one Rick !
    Jack Regan at Fullback, Craig Kelly at CHB, Jack Murphy in the Centre, Tony Francis as rover and some bloke called Bernie Shannon on the bench. All Magpies.

  4. Already have a Kelly, Regan yes, Shannon yes, never heard of Murphy as a first name for any real-life female personage, Francis needs a sex-change, but overall thanks for your contribution Phil

  5. And thanks for refraining from nominating Brian or Mick Taylor. Even Regan was borderline but Bill Shakespeare (no less) nudged him/her over the line, just…..

  6. Peter_B says:

    Surely Daniel CHICK gets a universal guernsey. My advancing years mean I call everyone luv or mate. So……

  7. Rabid Dog says:

    Where’s Robert Shirley? Surely with such an Australian name as that, he gets a game (how many here have a relative named Shirl?)

    “Where’s Robert Shirley? Surely with such an Australian name as that, he gets a game (how many here have a relative named Shirl?)”

    “surely you can’t be serious? I am, and don’t call me Shirley!” with thanks to Airplane/Flying High.
